BENEFITS & RESOURCES FOR FIREFIGHTERS

It’s our privilege to serve the fire community

From discounts on loans, to rate bumps on deposits, to assistance should you lose a loved one, we've got you covered. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us directly.

Since we began in 1951 at old 17 Engine on Jessie Street, a lot has changed.

 

One thing, however, remains constant – we continue to honor and serve your community. Our credit union is proud to be the preferred financial provider to the San Francisco firefighter community. We remain active and passionate supporters of firefighters like you, and are committed to your success.

Honoring the Past While Evolving to the Future

 

We honor tradition. But as the financial industry and technology changes, we must evolve as well. To offer our firefighter members the best rates and products, and the most modern experience, we need a broad membership base. Even as we add new members, we will always remain loyal to firefighters like you. It is an honor to serve your community.

Giving You Our Best

 

Firefighters give their best to the community. To help you achieve your financial goals, we give you our very best terms. Get ahead faster with special firefighter-only rate premiums on deposit accounts, discounts on auto and motorcycle loans, and waived or reduced fees for mortgage loans.
